mentioned the port of tartus and it's a russian naval base. i wonder if we have a graphic here of the base. it's geopolitical stronghold for russia. their decision not to provide amnesty, for assad at this point. >> russia has to think of their own concerns ahead of the relationship with syria, no longer the same. syria is crumbling and assad is likely to die there. convince him to break down or make concession. the rate at which we see this go on is where we watch defection of the high level of the military. if he tries to leave too soon, his life is in danger. where they go, he goes. he doesn't want to leave. waiting to see if he is killed in his country. i don't think the russians can pressure him to make the decision. >> no matter what his fate, it won't put an end to bloodshed in country. >> no. this is a case study and not intervention. america is intervening everywhere. counterproductive. >> president obama was the most outspoken on this. how terrible of throwing the weight around. we didn't throw the wait around at all. they are not using helicopter and airplanes and then they did
it happened and what the coast guard is doing to get it safely back to port. uma: we are following some disturbing developments out of iran. the country's navy is reportedly test firing a range of weapons including torpedoes and missiles near the strategic strait of hormuz, a vital passageway for 1/5 of the world's oil supplies. joining us to the discuss the possible ramifications, aaron david miller, a former advisor to six secretaries of state and vice president of the woodrow wilson center. great to have you here today. >> great to be here, uma. uma: how concerned are you by the recent actions of by iran regarding this test firing going on by the straits of hormuz? >> happy new year, and by the way this is really the mullahs way of extending a happy new year to the administration as well. these are aer is series of six-day integrated exercises to demonstrate and show that the iranians can take care of their own business and defend their coastline and if necessary, if necessary, put up an offensive deterrent capacity in the event they're struck by the united states and israel. i think
port, actually in president kennedy's old house. we're told it's not a matter of whether he'll run but where. people who saw him at the democratic convention and were struck by how much he was his father's son, the booming voice, the passion for health care. so if he doesn't go for this senate seat we think he'll run for something in connecticut down the road. >> schieffer: i think basically on affleck, i don't think he'll probably run in the end but i think what he was doing was letting people know he's not shutting the door to the idea. i think the next step he'll look out the window, see if he sees the ground swell out there, and if he does, he might do it. >> there's a practical side to all this as well. he knows he's advocating for certain things, and one of the ways to keep his name visible and the advocacy he's pushing is to talk in two different level use hollywood advocacy and possible political candidate. he's trying to, i think, leverage both to maintain attention to what he can on the cause he's working on. >> schieffer: this thing in south carolina, where you have the
con. he called it -- lincoln. he called it land improvements. he meant ports and railroads at the time. public infrastructure is always the public's responsibility. so the question is never whether or not you're going to do it, you have to do it. the question is when does it make most sense? i would submit to you that it makes most sense today. why? because money is as cheap as it's ever going to be. every municipal government throughout this country borrows money by issuing debt bonds to underwrite the cost of building new frals. we -- infrastructure. we could be borrowing money today for about 1%. labor is cheap, equipment is cheap, because both are idling. and we clearly need the infrastructure investment. final thought on this? transportation for america, a not-for-profit organization, identifies 69,000 structurally deficient bridges in this nation. there's over 2,000 structurally deficient bridges in my state of new york. and in western new york we have 99 structurally deficient bridges. every second of every day seven cars drive on a bridge that is structurally deficient. we saw
water port on the east coast. we are planning to take full advantage of the panama canal, the changes there coming soon. which gives us the ability to bring commerce into virginia. we are aggressively building our rail system. going from the port of virginia west to try to get that traffic out west. we are -- just announced that we are building another highway. it will be a toll access highway. but one of the primary purposes of that highway is to bring truck traffic from the port of virginia inland. and connect it directly with interstate 95. and so that will help us again through the commerce side of the equation to bring in new commerce and the commonwealth of virginia. i'm going to mention something that's been a little bit taboo as of late. the governor is not ashamed of it as all. as a matter of fact we've taken full advantage of it. and it was discussed earlier, that's incentives to business. the governor has put significant additional resources into our virginia economic development partnership. both funds that he has at his disposal to incentivize and encourage business to co

of which is as the seventh uss enterprise was on her way back to port at pearl harbor. on december 7, 1941. and would later launch the first u.s. strikes of the war against japan at the marshall islands. the current uss enterprise was also on her way home on the 11th of september 2001. just over three weeks later, she would launch the first strike against al qaeda and the taliban in afghanistan. now imagine yourself a board uss enterprise on the night of those first strikes. here's part of what her captain told her crew. good evening, shipmates. the last time americans actually went to war to defend against our homeland was almost exactly 60 years ago. when our threats and her enemies conducted a surprise attack on pearl harbor. during that attack, a different enterprise was at sea on her way home. it was ultimately a response to that typical bloody task of soundly defeating her enemy. and ever since then, when america has gone to war, is to protect freedom and our vital interest, those of our allies. we have not had to defend our homeland since december 7, 1941. however, september 11 our
against u.s. soil. it's israel's problem. but when you will find an atomic, makes the case with the port of san diego, it will become your problem. i do think it should be a joint effort of western society, meaning the u.s., israel, canada, australia will have only with leadership decisions in washington. >> that's not going to have been. >> the u.s. is israel's only fan. people are pretty disgusted with the kind of undemocratic behavior going on there. >> if you show me a stronger democracy in the middle east for a stronger ally of the united states in the region, i will agree with you. but i beg to differ because the cheapest aircraft today at the united states in the middle east is in that region. we are in the frontline presenting the same value in same principles. you'll find the source is coming to shores. >> thank you. >> you know, i share your concerns about iran. i worry about it all the time. i think it's real. but growing up jewish, and learned that being jewish also meant caring about the stranger from the bible or the people of king david, but also people of the profits. wha

the information that surrounded the special mission there, there was some 200 ports leading up to it that talked about this security situation deteriorating, and they knew it, and so the folks there at the special mission were asking for help and asking for higher security. we know that tripoli asked. the report said they didn't ask hard enough. it's really not their responsibility. so what happened was they had all this information, and they processed it through the state department, and that leadership just failed to note the security around that -- around the ambassador when he traveled to benghazi, and a security of the special mission. not that they had to have it as a standard mission security status because it was a temporary facility, but the physical security part of it was just so wrong to fit the security threat that it resulted in the death of four americans. >> should we stop relying on local militias? there's security cam video showing that the libyan militias got in their pickup truck and ran at the first shot that was fired. >> well, i argue whose ever decision it was to hire the
